Chinese Threat Group Hits National Data Center in Central Asia
Kaspersky Lab researchers recently revealed that Chinese-speaking threat group LuckyMouse have hit a national data center in Central Asia with the aim to cripple government resources.
It is said that hitting the target would cause massive problems for a wide range of government resources at one fell swoop. It is said that the group used a watering hole or phishing to compromise employee accounts at the center.
Kaspersky added that national data centers are valuable sources of data that can also be abused to compromise official websites, and that the Chinese threat actors may be trying a more stealthier approach for their attacks.
